We ran the engine again last night, after checking the new fuel flow meter for calibration (it was pretty close), and hoped to check the timing. After reexamining the E/1 calibration, I think that we’re getting erroneous readings. I’m not sure that’s the whole problem, but it is a problem. We’ll try to check the timing over the weekend, and I received today another fuel servo (thanks Andy!) to try out as well. I expect to see the same readings with it as mine, and expect the timing will be within 1-2 degrees. I’ll correct the E/1 “standard” calibaration with my optical prop tach when it comes in. Beth is in Dallas next week visiting family, and our test pilot Dave Bertram, so he’s not availble to fly for at least that period. Hopefully my glass swan with spread her wings again soon.
